Jets Wideout Has Blunt Response To Zach Wilson Question

The New York Jets were humiliated in yesterday's 26-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, where rookie QB Zach Wilson once again had no touchdowns and multiple interceptions. But it looks like some of Wilson's teammates are starting to throw him under the bus.

Speaking to the media, Jets wide receiver Corey Davis was asked about the number of hits Wilson has been taking this season. Davis seemingly dismissed the question, saying "It's a grown man's league."

Corey Davis played a part in Zach Wilson's struggles yesterday. He caught just five of his 10 targets, dropping several passes and finishing with just 41 receiving yards.

But the offensive line hasn't been doing its part either. Since starting left tackle Mekhi Becton went down with a knee injury, Wilson has gotten the hell beaten out of him.

Wilson isn't finding any sympathy from that struggling offensive line either. Following the game, offensive guard Greg Van Roten said Wilson needs to get the ball out faster.

Zach Wilson is running out of people willing to defend him for his poor play. He lost the majority of the fanbase after his four-interception performance in Week 2 and appears to be losing the support of his own teammates now.

Jets GM Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh are tied at the hip to Wilson, but sooner or later they need to see the young quarterback show something - anything - that indicates that he can be a proper NFL quarterback.

So far, he hasn't shown that. And the Jets players aren't going out of their way to defend him.

It looks like things are only going to get tougher for Zach Wilson as the season progresses.
